Synopsis: After Josephine Wood’s father dies of cancer, her mother up-roots the two of them and moves to the city. Josie hates her city life, but her teenage issues are of little consequence when they have a car accident and she wakes up in a strange land (reminiscent of Victorian Europe) alone. Lost, with her school backpack as the only connection to her world, Josie struggles to find her way home. She is found by Lucius Conrí, the son of a Marquess, who possesses royal blood and the gift to shift into a wolf’s form at will. Can the kind-hearted Lucius help her find her way while winning her love, or will she fall for Donovan Conrí his older, more serious brother and heir to the Conrí wealth?

What a fun beginning to a new series! It starts out sad, though, as Josie's father has died of cancer and her mom moves them to the city. Josie is having a hard time adjusting. She's in a car accident and wakes up in a foreign land with only her backpack to link her to her old life. She meets Lucius, who first appears to her as a wolf, and then returns as a man. He takes her home and she's surprised when she finds out where he lives and who he is, even before she learns that he can shift into a wolf. His brother, Donovan, enters the picture and she finds herself attracted to him, too. She enjoys spending time with each of them but still has a strong desire to return home. 

This book pulled me in from the beginning and I found myself getting lost in the story. I felt for Josie as she fell for both brothers and enjoyed spending time with each one (but I definitely have a favorite). I enjoyed learning about the Conri brothers and their history and how the book got its title. Josie was fascinated with the world she somehow fell into since it was quite different than what she used to but she was also anxious to go home. She was pretty young to be faced with the decisions she had to make. I really wasn't sure how it would end and have to admit that it surprised me. I won't say why because I don't want to spoil it. The ending definitely makes me want to read more! I would recommend this to anyone that enjoys paranormal romance!

My Rating=4 stars
